Given below is a song titled ‘Chhoti see kahaani se’  from the film Ijaazat with its translation:

Chhoti see kahaani se,

With a short story

Bareeshon ki paani se saare waade bhar gayi,

With the rain water all promises were fulfilled

Naa jaane kyo, dil bhar gaya, Naa jaane kyo, aankh bhar gayi

I don’t know why the heart became heavy and the eyes welled up

Shaakho pe patte the,patton pe boonde thi

Branches had leaves, leaves had droplets

Boondo mein paani thaa,paani mein aansoo thi

Droplets had water and the water had tears
